East Boston Real Estate

East Boston, nicknamed “Eastie,” is an up and coming residential neighborhood known for its waterfront and many green spaces. The diverse community of 40,000 residents is especially popular with young professionals because of its affordability and proximity to Downtown Boston. Developers created the neighborhood in the 1800s by connecting several islands using landfill; today East Boston is separated from Downtown Boston by the Boston Harbor, providing waterfronts such as LoPresti and Piers Park overlooking the harbor. Investors have capitalized on the neighborhood’s appeal with a frenzy of new projects. The housing stock ranges from historic single-family homes, renovated condos with rooftop decks to luxurious, waterfront condos, such as those available in Slip 65 on Jeffries Point. Many properties feature amenities that used to be considered extras, including roof decks, integrated technology, quartz counters and high-end cabinetry. East Boston is home to several historic landmarks, including the first Jewish cemetery in the state as well as the new ICA Watershed, a branch of the Boston Public Library.  Read more about East Boston real estate.

East Boston History

East Boston has long provided a foothold for immigrant populations seeking a new life, starting with the Irish and later becoming a home for Russian Jews, Italians and Latinos. John F. Kennedy’s great grandfather immigrated to East Boston and the Kennedy family made East Boston their home for some time. JFK famously campaigned in Eastie during his run for the U.S. Senate in 1954. The heart of the Italian community in the Boston area lies in East Boston with many pasta and pizza joints as a delectable byproduct. The Madonna Shrine, the national headquarters of the Don Orione order, is a replica of the original religious structure in Rome. More recently a wave of immigrants from Central and South American countries have introduced a number of well-regarded eateries and food trucks.

East Boston continues to be popular with Hollywood. “Proud Mary” and the Denzel Washington hit “The Equalizer” and “Equalizer 2” productions filmed scenes in the neighborhood, including a high-speed car chase scene.
